Where other therapies have failed, Ketamine steps in.

With a somewhat complex history dating back to 1956 with a primarily veterinary anesthetic use, the concept of Ketamine as a therapeutic and healing option for patients may seem an odd, and even controversial choice, but the results speak for themselves.

It is a safe alternative to many addictive or ineffective drugs for widespread health disorders with positive effects and results.
Ketamine is rapid acting, has a short duration or action, and has been known to drastically help those affected by Chronic Depression, Bipolar Disorder, and PTSD.

Victory Medical in Austin, is dedicated to bringing their patients the most revolutionary practices in healthcare to help them find the relief they need.

Meet Dr. Franklin, the Founder & Director

As a result of my profound childhood passion to care for people, I opened Victory Medical in 1996. During the 30+ years I have been in practice my vision has evolved to include many branches in the tree of medicine. I completed specialized training in Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy and Anti-Aging medicine. While most of my practice has transitioned to focusing on those aspects of healthcare, I continue to care for patients in my family medicine practice. Most recently, I began to delve into alternative treatment possibilities for those patients struggling with life-altering mental health issues. I am elated to open our groundbreaking Ketamine Therapy clinic to help those patients as well as those who suffer from chronic pain. Ketamine Therapy is literally saving lives!!

Ketamine Therapy is still a new concept in healthcare, and Victory Medical is one of the few clinics in the United States that is now licensed, and able to offer Ketamine as a therapeutic practice to patients.

Victory Medical believes that every patient deserves the utmost attention, which is why every Ketamine Therapy infusion is monitored by a trained therapist every step of the way. Every patient’s reaction is different, and Victory Medical is ready to monitor and administer the correct dosages and advice to every individual for the most beneficial results.

“Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.” -Hippocrates
